How to take care of your medic.

22 August 201011:12AMgamesrants

I'm actually not a huge fan of first-person shooters, mostly because they seem to be aimed squarely at 14-year-old males with an intimate knowledge of the difference between and M15 and an M16 who squeak into the voice chat and call everyone a ganking cocksucking noob- a demographic of which I am most definitely not a member. Team Fortress 2, on the other hand, is the total opposite of this. It's accessible (ie, the Flamethrower is called a Flamethrower and not a P-417DQR mk II), and the players are generally mature and pleasant and have a decent sense of humour. But this is now what I am here to talk about today.

Today I am here to talk about the Care and Feeding of the Common or Garden Medic. Specifically, the one played by me.

Your medic is your friend. He is here to help you, and takes pleasure (and assist points) from your success. However, just because this alliance is mutually beneficial, does not let you take your healgun-wielding teammate for granted. Thus, I shall endeavour to provide a succinct list of DOs and DO NOTs in order to help you make the most of your medic.
